Eastern Kingbird

I think I just saw an Eastern Kingbird in my yard!!! Darn it, the birds ate all the food yesterday! Must refill! Maybe I've got a new visitor! Woohoooo first new bird of the summer!

Didn't have my camera handy, unfortunately.

LEROI MOORE 1961-2008

Godspeed, LeRoi


We are deeply saddened that LeRoi Moore, saxophonist and founding member of Dave Matthews Band, died unexpectedly Tuesday afternoon, August 19, 2008, at Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center in Los Angeles from sudden complications stemming from his June ATV accident on his farm near Charlottesville, Virginia. LeRoi had recently returned to his Los Angeles home to begin an intensive physical rehabilitation program.

I'm watching some young house sparrows sitting in the tree in my back yard. They're starting to molt and get their grown-up feathers, and it's funny because the young house sparrows all have markings similar to females, so the male ones start to get their adult feathers and you see the male pattern growing in, so they look like half female and half male. It makes me giggle. There are a few new babies too - looks like at least one house sparrow couple did double-duty on the breeding this summer.

There aren't many finches this year. I think they got wiped out with the awful winter, and I haven't seen any finch babies like I did last year. So sad.
